Great welcome for us and our dogs. Gardens were absolutely fantastic. Cafe was great and had a dog friendly corner so we had cake and coffee and then came back for lunch. And a shop where I was tempted to spend too much money!

As a former resident of Cornwall during WWII,and more recently for some 15 years, I have enjoyed visiting Trebah on a number of trips down memory lane. Its beauty, unique pathways through the valley and historical significance just leaves it's mark on the memory of any visitor of my vintage. I well remember the days before D Day when I... More

If you like walking on a hill looking at bushes and stuff, then this is the place for you. It's steep. There's water at the bottom, you can hire some kayaks.

2 Sunday roasts of beef. Could do with more vegetables on the plate for £11. Very nice however. Vegetarian burger was lovely & a generous portion of chips! Lovely cafe right in the entrance so lots to see. Overpriced gift shop. Easy parking. Would go again if in area.

My first visit to the Estate and cafe. Enjoyed an excellent cooked breakfast, hot drink and good service from the young man working on his own behind the counter. It represented good value for money and would certainly recommend it to others.

Trebah is a National Trust garden but well worth the entry charge if you are not a member ! Constructed on steep [ but easily walked] slopes there are surprises and wonderful views at every corner . The planting near the house is traditional cottage garden beds but there are also lovely hydrangea walks, camelias and rhododendrons in addition to... More

Dear Mags, Thank you for your positive comments that relate to Trebah. As all Cornish Gardens have common elements it is often easy to blur more than one together. Although the bamboo, gunnera and lakes relate to us, The Barn Cafe and cottage beds at the House are more likely to be Trelissick which is a National Trust property. Trebah... More

Lovely fresh cake, good coffee and a cracking outlook. Highly recommended. Busy, nice atmosphere and decent value too. Not a lot more to be said

Probably one of my favourite gardens in Cornwall. They are well laid out and wonderful just to walk around and take in the atmosphere. Had a very good lunch here to top a great day out.

A wonderful garden with a hidden beach at the bottom of it. The views are stunning throughout the garden and there are loads of different things to see around every corner. Be careful that you don't miss anything! Loved hiding in the tall plants, and seeing the beautiful colours of the hydrangeas. Have recommended Trebah Gardens to all our friends... More
